Album Notes
Amanda Abel has long been a presence on the cabaret scene of both coasts. She hails from New York, but makes California her home, since, unlike Berlin, she does NOT dream of a "White Christmas!"

In LA, her name has lit the marquees of The Cinegrill, The Gardenia, Spazio's, Sterling's, The Carpenter Center for the Performing Arts and more. Palm Springs residents will be familiar with her many roles in the "Musical Chairs" concert series at The Annenberg Theatre, as well as solo cabaret performances.

As an actress, she appeared in Saddleback Civic Light Opera's production of "Gypsy," and portrayed Judy Garland in both "Judy's Scary Little Christmas" and "Judy at the Stonewall Inn."

Amanda is proud to be the granddaughter of the legendary Eddie Cantor, and always hopes somehow he's listening...

Recent reviews:

"Amanda comes out swinging high throughout this 17 song well-informed story set. She remains right on top of things to the very last note...Amanda is a vocal delight. Another Singer's Singer to seek out in upcoming cabaret appeareances." - Dan Singer, In Tune International Magazine

"Last weekend, Amanda Abel brought her pastiche of Judy Garland, Liza Minnelli and Barbra Streisand to 'Heaven' in Palm Springs...she excelled with her Garland segment with a rip-roaring salute to San Francisco..." - Jeff Britton, The Desert Sun

"Who is Amanda Abel? Granddaughter of the legendary Eddie Cantor? Yes, but she's much more than that. She's wowing LA audiences with her talent and beauty. Amanda is one of the stars to watch in 2006. You cannot take your eyes off her. She's an uncanny impersonator of everyone, and oh, what a voice!' - Tommy Garrett, Canyon News

"A packed audience at Peter's enjoyed Amanda Abel so much this past weekend...they had to set up tables in the East 40 just to accomodate everyone." - Barbara Wisbey, The Bottom Line

"With an emphasis on the feisty and fun..this plucky lady plucks some from the musical theater/musical film many before her who know how to "sell" a number and its comic moments...she belts fearlessly. Interestingly, in additon to cabaret work and other credits, Amanda has worked doing impressions of famous female singers and from the impressive sound and video clips on her website, it seems the discipline is good for her. It's also noteworthy that the singer is the granddaughter of the legendary Eddie Cantor and the sister of songwriter-singer Brian Gari. She struts her way through "Relax with Me Baby" from his Late Nite Comic. Mother Janet Gari is a songwriter as well...
Two songs about bad luck - or rather, no luck - in finding Mr Right let Amanda mine comic frustration. She's in fine form with these. She takes her leave of the stage with her exit cue cutie, "I'm Outta Here" by Ray Jessel and Cynthia Thompson."
- Rob Lester,

Exciting night club act!
Abel's well executed night club act comes to life in this recording. Fine musicianship and arrangements bring a vibrant quality to Abel's interesting choice of songs. The rare song from New Faces of 1968 entitled Where is Me is a welcome relief from the usual cabaret repertoire. Abel's patter can be truly funny and adds to the delightful mix of tunes. I'm glad I took a chance on this release.

Julie Esposito

A True Original!
No one provides more effervescence and joie de vie on stage than Amanda Abel, which thankfully, comes through on this special CD. She also has great comedic timing, and has made steller and varied song choices that are well-suited for her. A class act all the way around!

Wilson Raiser

The first time I saw Ms. Abel, she was impersonating Judy Garland, and I thought WOW, she is great. Now hearing her album, I reiterate it, although she can impersonate one of the greatest singers ever, she has her own style and excitement. Her voice is clear and strong, and awesone. I am sure Eddie is looking down with pride. Thanks for the wonderful moments of entertainment.

Rodell Rosel

I find myself playing this CD as many times as I possibly can. Everything about it is good: the singer, the band, the recording. Nothing in this CD is boring.

Tommy Garrett/ The Canyon News

It's sensational and has such wonderful style
I had the opportunity to listen to her CD recently and I can't say enough positive things about it. Amanda doesn't rest on her laurels of being the offspring of a great legend (Eddie Cantor)...the lady is tireless, stunningly beautiful and full of the fire it takes to make it in this industry. The CD is $15.00, and worth three times that, in my opinion.

Wayne Moore, Ducy Lee Recordings

Wide variety of clever material...her comedy timing is flawless
Amanda Abel's live CD is terrific. She presents a wide variety of clever material and performs everything with style and ease. Her comedy timing is flawless. The high musicianship of this album alone would be enough to recommend it. Simply put, this CD makes you wish you had been there!

Vaudeville lives!
Amanda Abel steps into your listening room from the highly coloured pages of the pageant of vaudeville (if spiked with a twist of Broadway). What a refreshing blast of lesser-known and unknown (=new) material, most especially the Maltby/Shire "Miss Byrd" (from Urban Blight, 1988). Miss Byrd apart, Miss Abel can come back henever she likes.
